Would you like to brush up on your cúpla focal in a comfortable, informal and mutually supportive environment? Would you like to use more Irish as a family? Glór na nGael is the national lead organisation charged with the development of the Irish language in families, in communities and in business, Glór na nGael's office for Munster and South Leinster is based in 18 Mitchell Street, Dungarvan, from where Glór na nGael activities across this region are coordinated and supported.
In Dungarvan there are weekly opportunities for people to come together through Irish, both at the "Gaeilge Anseo" social group every Tuesday at 7pm in the Park Hotel, Dungarvan and at the conversation group (Ciorcal Comhrá) held in Dungarvan Library every Thursday at 6.30pm. A Ciorcal Comhrá also recently commenced in Clonmel Library every Thursday at 10.30am. All are welcome, regardless of ability.
Parents with baby's and younger children are welcome to join in with the fun at Glór Teaghlaigh Dhún Garbhán, the weekly bilingual play group held every Wednesday at 10.30am in the Dungarvan Youth Community Centre. Glór Teaghlaigh provides an opportunity for parents who use English or another language as the current home language, to develop their use of Irish with their children in a very natural way. It is also a space for Irish language families to come together in a comfortable and supportive environment. Childminders are also very welcome. All these events are free or with a small voluntary contribution towards tea/coffee.
As well as these weekly opportunities to come together as Gaeilge, Glór na nGael organises other events throughout the year for families, including picnics, story telling, weekends away and an annual Gaeltacht holiday for Irish language families.
